Discover a stylish alternative to plain jewellery with our brand new ball closure rings. These BCRs feature shaped and cut-out balls, so they look more stylish than a regular ball closure ring. New thing month are the two ball closure rings that you can see below. One features a cut-out star ball, while the other has a beautiful 3D carved rose in place of a ball. These ball closure rings work in the same way as plain BCRs and are just as easy to fit and insert. They are made from high quality 316L surgical steel, so they are also very comfortable and non-irritating to wear.

New Jewelled Charm Nipple Bar

Also new this month we have this beautiful jewelled charm nipple bar. This nipple bar consists of a jewelled filigree charm suspended from a plain barbell. The whole piece is made from surgical steel and you can also wear the barbell without the charm if you wish. This nipple bar is one of our most stunning pieces. I love the elegance of the design and the delicate but glamorous colour of the pink and red jewels. We also have many other charm nipple bars and nipple shields to choose from, which you can find in our Steel Nipple Shields category.

Discover a new type of piercing jewellery with our range of titanium continuous piercing rings. These rings are a great alternative to BCRs and smooth segment rings. Like segment rings, they give the appearance of a smooth, continuous ring. They consist of a simple titanium ring with a small gap on one side. Once inserted into your piercing, they give a seamless appearance and will stay securely in place. The result is much more comfortable than a BCR and gives you a more streamlined, elegant look. You can wear a continuous piercing ring in almost any piercing, including ear piercings, lip, eyebrow, nipple and septum piercings. These piercing rings are made from high quality G23 titanium, so they are completely non-irritating, nickel-free and very comfortable to wear.

How To Use Continuous Piercing Rings

To insert a continuous piercing ring, you will need to make the gap wide enough to accommodate your piercing. To do so, gently twist the two ends away from each other, either by hand or using a pair of ring opening pliers. Do not simply pull them apart sideways (as you would with a BCR), as this will distort the ring too much. Then insert the ring into your piercing. Once the continuous ring is in place, twist the ends back into position. Titanium is extremely durable and should original retain its shape if handled with care.

White Steel Continuous Piercing Rings

We also have two continuous piercing rings in white steel. These piercing rings are made from high quality steel with an anodised white finish. The finish is similar to that of coloured titanium – it is smooth, durable and does not alter the biocompatibility of the steel. These rings are very comfortable to wear and available in both 1.2mm and 1.6mm.

Discover a stylish statement with our new range of ear piercing cuffs. These ear cuffs consist of a clip-on ear cuff and a barbell, connected by jewelled chains. The ear cuff clips onto the outside of your ear and you can wear the barbell in either a tragus piercing or an ear lobe piercing. The result is a beautiful piece that drapes across your ear and really stands out. Our ear piercing cuffs come in ten glamorous designs, most of which you can see below. They feature glam jewels and charms that catch the light and shine brightly. You can chose from pretty butterflies, sparkling stars and tattoo-inspired motifs like skulls and arrows.

Our blackline ear piercing jewellery combines a sleek look with amazing comfort, so no matter which ear piercings you have. Blackline is a truly unique material for piercing jewellery, consisting of surgical quality titanium with a smooth, biocompatible black coating. It is extremely biocompatible, making blackline ear piercing jewellery very comfortable to wear. It will not irritate your piercing and can even reduce healing times when compared to other metal piercing jewellery. If your ear piercing is often sore or just refuses to heal, I recommend switching to blackline jewellery. We have a great range of blackline jewellery that you can wear in lots of different ear piercings. Labret studs and barbells are ideal for ear lobe, conch, tragus and helix piercings; while BCRs and circular barbells are suitable for almost all ear piercings.

Discover a beautiful alternative to metal tunnels with our range of glass flesh tunnels. These tunnels are made from durable barium glass and they look simply stunning in your ears. The shine and translucency of the glass gives them a unique look that you won’t find with any other type of flesh tunnel. The colours are amazing and they catch the light for a lovely jewel-like look.

When you first consider glass flesh tunnels, most people are worried about them being fragile. Thankfully the opposite is true. Our glass tunnels are made from barium crystal glass, which is shatterproof and very durable. Obviously we recommend that you treat your glass tunnels with care, but they are durable and will not break through normal use. Our glass flesh tunnels are not only beautiful, but also very comfortable to wear. Glass is an inert material that does not react with your skin. This means that it is non-irritating and ideal for people wit sensitive skin, metal sensitivity or easily-irritated piercings. The smooth surface also means that this glides smoothly into your stretching, without dragging on the skin.

When you stretch your ears, the most important things that you can do are a) stretch slowly and b) use high quality ear stretching kit. High quality stretching tools give you the best chance of a healthy stretching process and a good end result. This is because good quality tools will be made of biocompatible, lightweight materials that do not cause irritation or put undue pressure on the piercing. In this post I will outline the ear stretching kit that is not only my personal favourite, but is recommend by the majority of piercers and experienced stretchers.

For Stretching Your Ears

For actually stretching your ears, I highly recommend surgical steel stretching tapers. Here at Body Jewellery Shop you can buy these tapers individually or as a kit, as you can see below. High quality steel stretching tapers such as ours are finely machined with a perfectly smooth surface and will not irritate your ears. If you choose cheaper acrylic tapers, you may find that they irritate your ears and drag on the skin. Lubricant is also essential – either jojoba, Vitamin E, olive, hemp or almond oil. These natural oils reduce drag and pain during stretching. They also condition the skin and should be used to massage the earlobe both before stretching and during the healing process.

For After You Have Stretched Your Ears

After you have stretched your ear, remove the taper and insert an unflared flesh tunnel. My favourites are the steel flesh tunnels below. You should never leave the taper in, as this leads to uneven stretching and puts pressure on the new stretching. You should always use non-porous materials for your first post-stretching jewellery to encourage clean healing: either surgical steel or titanium.

For Healed Ear Stretchings

Once your ear stretching has healed completely and you have reached your desired gauge, I recommend wearing wooden flesh tunnels or plugs. Wooden jewellery is completely non-irritating, lightweight and very comfortable to wear. It reduces odour and stays the same temperature as your body. My own wooden tunnels have kept my ears happy for years and I find that they require less cleaning compared to metal jewellery. So there you have it, my favourite ear stretching kit!
